In January 2012 I launched My Beautiful Eyes Campaign, calling for the UK government to regulate the refractive eye surgery industry.
This resulted in a surprisingly high number of people asking for my advice, and so I set up MBE Foundation, a patient advocacy service...

normal Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Increasing numbers of patients under the age of 45 are contacting MBE with problems following RLE surgery, some only in their twenties!

"Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye (also called "crystalline lens") that has developed an opacification, which is referred to as a cataract. Metabolic changes of the crystalline lens fibers over time lead to the development of the cataract and loss of transparency, causing impairment or loss of vision. Many patients' first symptoms are strong glare from lights and small light sources at night, along with reduced acuity at low light levels. During cataract surgery, a patient's cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens to restore the lens's transparency."

NB: There is a high risk of retinal detachment with RLE surgery.

When I asked him recently an eminent specialist told me that, unless it was an extreme prescription, he would only provide RLE to patients aged 50+ .

Yet Optical Express routinely offer this procedure as an option to laser, putting the patient at unnecessary risk of retinal detachment - which at least two MBE clients I know so far have suffered as a result of RLE.

OERML & My Beautiful Eyes Foundation rely on your support to expose the horrors of this unregulated industry.

Your help is very much appreciated!
